No. Ionic bonding produces ions. Covalent bonding usually produces molecules.

the stomach produces hemoglobin to protect its walls from being digested by itself

What is the difference of human and pig hemoglobin?

practically no difference. In both the hemoglobin has the same job, bonding with oxygen.

How many CO2 is found in hemoglobin?

At the end of each protein chain in a hemoglobin (4) there is a amine group for the CO2 to bind to...therefore it can hold 4.

What reaction produces water?

Combustion leads to water forming as it is typical for CO2 to be produced along with water (H2O) when burning a standard fuel such as wood. Ionic bonding does not produce water. The Bonding of two hydrogen atoms to every oxygen atom is known as covalent bonding. Ionic bonding only occurs between a non-metal and metal atoms.

What source produces the most CO2?

Nature produces over 90% of all CO2. Heating, cooling and powering our homes and buildings makes up over half of the CO2 man produces. Automobiles produce about 33% of our CO2 contribution. In total man contributes 3 to 6% of the total CO2.

Is carbon dioxide picked up by hemoglobin and red blood cells?

Yes, some CO2 is returned to the lungs by hemoglobin transport.

How are oxygen and carbon dioxide transported on the same hemoglobin molecule?

They're not. Hemoglobin is involved in O2 transport only, CO2 is carried as carbonic acid.

Why does hemoglobin accept oxygen molecules in the lungs but gives up oxygen molecules in tissue?

In the lungs where the oxygen concentration is high the binding of oxygen tohemoglobin is high. In respiring tissue where the oxygen levels are low and the CO2 levels are high the affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen is reduced and so the oxygen comes off the hemoglobin and is used by the cells. The driving force for this is the Bohr Effect whereby CO2 produced by the respiring cells dissolves in the blood as follows CO2 + CO2 --> H2CO3 --> H+ + HCO3-. The H+ produced bind to the hemoglobin and in doing so displace the oxygen

What is the role of red blood cell?

It transport respiratory gases,Oxygen and CO2. It has hemoglobin for that.

Explain how photosynthesis and cell respiration are connected?

What is the significance of hemoglobin in respiration?

Hemoglobin is involved in transport of oxygen (as well as a small amount of CO2). Hemoglobin contains an iron molecule at the center; it is the site of oxygen binding. When we obtain oxygen through respiration, it binds to hemoglobin in the blood and is then transported throughout the body.
